    A new beginning. That's what I felt when I played around and transformed this little baby. Aesthetically pleasant. Well engineered as well. I took an immediate liking to it. I can't really say much about the leader class Prime but in any case, fel free to comment once I've finished the piece.

    Some key features include:

    - Ultra smooth Starburst Metallics finish with UV protection
    - LEDs in the head with batteries stored in his chest
    - Blaster given the LED treatment and finished with Chrome
    - Highly detailed in every aspect with fine shading in plate silver

    I'll be posting this masterpiece on ebay soon. If you like it, please support me and bid. I will not be replicating anymore ebay pieces due to my work commitments. Last but not least, happy viewing! :)

    Can't wait to see what you do with this figure. I still think the mold looks like crap but I'm sure you'll make it better.

    There's no denying that you can apply paint well with an airbrush, but I just don't care for your style. It probably stems from my general distaste of import cars that have been riced out and painted with obnoxiously vibrant colors. I see your work and I picture that 94 Honda Civic Del Sol that some 17 year old spent his last months pay check painting a pearl lime green and bolting on a fart can exhaust pipe, lowering the suspension beyond any reasonable application just to have the front bumper scratched off when going over a speed bump.

    This is what you make all your transformers look like. Show cars.

    These characters have been embroiled in war for millions of years and yours look like they've been driven south of the border and pimped out for a reality tv show.

    To each his own obviously, but I like my Transformers looking like they do battle, not like cheap matchbox cars.

    Ahahaha the marriage proposal so early in the thread! Epic! And pathetic! Haha.

    Ahahaha the laughs keep coming. While I understand your point about the show car look, what's truly laughable about your post is you comparing the paintwork of her customs to anything cheap. You're WAY off here.

    Just keep reminding yourself that this is a CUSTOM. It can be anything, and this customizer's paintwork is always ultra clean and well finished. Taking the time to make such an extensive analogy about riced-out imports is a ridiculous way to say "the show-car style doesn't suit my ideas about Transformers only being allowed to look like battle-worn hunks of junk".

    :lol

    Man why so harsh? It's a custom! A custom could turn out how the artist would like to have it! You do what you want, Sabrina did what she want. No problems here. If you want another look, create a custom yourself and we will see how it turns out!

    I am a long time fan first time poster. I agree with LimeWire each person is entitled to their own opinion and creative expression of what a transformer should look like and Nyarlahotep is entitled to his opinion but the expression of that opinion could have been a tad less harsh. I must say I am a fan both Sabrina_Ng's and Micky24 work and enjoy both of their unique styles. I hope one day to be as good at customization as both of you.

    I kinda have to agree with some on here. It's definitely a nice paint job, but, it does look like the same thing done to each custom made..which is of course your style. But, the problem with that..is while it's an excellent paint job, it just all looks the same. Meaning that the regular paint, which on a vehicle would be a glossy finish, and then chrome, which has a reflective finish, and then there is rubber, plastic etc etc..Where as all of your parts from glass to metal areas to chrome..All kinda look the same. Have the same finish to them. Nothing stands out anymore.
